Happy 1st Birthday Zackary
Some people love any excuse to throw a party. Others revel in the rush of planning big, celebratory events. One popular feature at weddings, Bah/Bat Mitzvahs, and other events is to offer guests with a candy buffet as a way to say “thank you” to them for attending or a way to offer party favours.
Kate Albera and her husband can attest to the fact that the Angry Birds themed candy buffet they offered guests at their son’s first birthday party was a huge success. They challenged us to design a party for Zackary, which included creating themed risers, designing a themed backdrop, and even a custom made “pig hideout” for those hard-hatted pigs to hide from the Angry Birds. Every little detail that can be found in the video game was included in the design.
The Society Candy Buffet Stylists’ creativity and attention to detail were incredible. Absolutely nothing was left out of the planning and creation of the display. The colours incorporated into the buffet spread were aligned with what gamers would see on their screens as they engaged in playing Angry Birds. Even the candies displayed were given creatively designed names. The chocolate candy pieces served at Zachary’s party were called “Eagle’s Choc Drops” and the long sour blowpipes were appropriately named “Rasher’s Blowpipes”.
There was even much thought put into the actual display of the candy buffet, so much so that artificial grass was used to line the table tops so that the candy looked like it was sitting in grass, as seen in Angry Birds.
In the end, it’s all about the guests’ satisfaction. The feedback received from this candy buffet follows…
Client Testimonial“My guests really enjoyed your candy buffet! They all had blast! It has immensely contributed to the success of my son’s first birthday party!
Everyone who attended still keeps on talking about your candy buffet after the party and I am glad that it’s all worth it. It’s money well spent according to my hubby. You have done a great job putting together an ‘Angry Birds Themed Candy Buffet’. My husband and I really loved it. Thank you very much Julia and Chris!”

The next time you are planning an event and want to thank guests for coming or offer them an original party favour, don’t forget that one of the options out there is a candy buffet. Nobody can ever argue with a creatively designed spread of scrumptious candy to satisfy anybody’s sweet tooth.
Just gorgeous, I love the baubbles filled with candy hanging off of the tree
The tea light candles in frosted holders are a nice touch
This white winter wonderland guest dessert feature created by Becca and Tammy of Ruby Ju is just stunning. Great work ladies!

This creepy crawly guest dessert feature was sent to us by Monique from Darling Details in Australia. This was Monique’s first attempt at a dessert table and we think she did a great job. Monique created this party for her son, Charlie’s 6th birthday. Her son is all boy and told his mom he wanted a “creepy crawly” birthday party. With excitement, off Monique went. We loved the props that she used (how cute is that frog) and the color palette. Monique enlisted the help of Sarah from Style Me Gorgeous to create the labels, banner, chocolate bar wrappers, tags and signs. Janet, from The Cupcake Lady, was able to replicate the birthday invitation design onto the cake, cookies and cupcakes. The earthy tones really compliment the theme and give the table a swampy vibe. Sweet treats included chocolate mousse, macarons, cakepops and cupcakes. As the children departed, they were given crocodile eggs that were placed inside a glass jar with rocks to resemble a crocodile nest. It was a big hit.
We love the detail that went into Charlie Creepy Crawly Birthday party along with a lot of love. A very lucky little boy.
